Before Registration Guide

These guides apply only to the myMadisonCollege Classic Portal.

  1. Check Your Enrollment Date

    If you are a continuing program or certificate student, you will have an assigned registration date. This enrollment date allows you to enroll in classes prior to the general public.

    1. Log into the myMadisonCollege Classic Portal and click the "Student Center" icon.
    2. Your enrollment date and time will be listed in the "Enrollment Date" box (on the right side).
    3. You are able to register anytime on or after this date and time. The sooner you register for classes, the more choices you will have.
    4. See the Registration Calendar for specific registration periods.
  2. View Your Degree Progress Report

    Your Degree Progress (Advisement) Report lists the classes you must take to graduate from the program you are enrolled in. Only students active in a program or certificate will have access to a Degree Progress Report.

    7. To view "Transfer Credits," expand the “Total Advanced Standing Credit” section. For more details, return to the Student Center and select "Transfer Credit Report" from under the "Academics" heading.
    8. Next, view degree progress, including satisfied, unsatisfied and in-progress requirements.
    9. A green checkmark indicates that you have taken the class, a yellow diamond means it is in progress and a blue star indicates that you have the course in your planner.
    10. To print a copy of your Degree Progress Report, use the "Print" option from your browser menu.
    11. To view "Course Details," click on the hyperlinked course title and view class sections to see if the course is currently offered.
    12. You may also add the class to your planner for a future term.
    13. To go back to your requirements, click the “Return to My Academic Requirements” link.
